Modern Slavery Policy

1. Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to affirm Renascent’s commitment to ensure to the best of our ability that there is no modern slavery in any part of our business operations. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business dealings and relationships, and where possible, to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in our own business or supply chain. As part of our contracting processes, we will include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude. Our business also expects its service providers, suppliers, and contractors to share our commitment to act lawfully and ethically and to work to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place within its organisation or within its supply chain.

2. Scope

This policy applies to all persons working for and with Renascent or on its behalf, including employees, directors, external consultants (subcontractors, consultants, and suppliers), third-party representatives and business partners.

3. Context

Modern slavery is an ongoing issue worldwide. The term ‘modern slavery’ describes situations where coercion, threats or deception are used to exploit victims and undermine their freedom. Coercion, threats and deception can be explicit or implicit.

The Modern Slavery Act 2018 defines modern slavery as including eight types of serious exploitation.

  1. trafficking in persons
  2. slavery
  3. servitute
  4. forced labour
  5. forced marriage
  6. debt bondage
  7. the worst forms of child labour
  8. deceptive recruiting for labour or service

The worst forms of child labour mean extreme forms of child labour that involve the serious exploitation of children, including through enslavement or exposure to dangerous work.

The worst forms of child labour do not mean all child work. Under Australian law, modern slavery is defined in the Act. In the event of any inconsistency, the definitions in the Act take precedence over this policy.

4. Reporting

4.1 Reporting Unethical or Unlawful Conduct

We encourage all employees, suppliers, and stakeholders to report any concerns or suspicions regarding modern slavery and human trafficking. Reports can be made through our designated reporting channels, ensuring confidentiality and protection against retaliation.

Reports of a potential modern slavery case are responded to in accordance with the Renascent Whistleblower Policy. The whistleblower policy states that if you become aware of any signs of modern slavery, you may make a report to a Senior Manager i.e., CEO, COO, NHSEQ Manager, General Manager or HR Department. Below are HR’s contact details:

  1. by email to; or
  2. the whistleblower complains form

If required, Renascent HR may contact the Australian Federal Police to investigate suspected cases of modern slavery. However, contact with the Australian Federal Police can be made anonymously on 131 237 to discuss or report a suspected case.

In an emergency and if someone is in immediate danger, please call Triple Zero {000) for police assistance.

4.2 Reporting to the Australia Border Force

Each year we will provide a Modern Slavery statement (as required under Australian law) that describes the actions we have taken to address Modern Slavery risks. The annual Modern Slavery Statement will be published on the company intranet site and here on the Renascent website.
